Philip Rivers Colts retires
Indianapolis Cotls quarterback Philip Rivers has announced his retirement from the NFL. After 17 years Rivers is a Hall of Famer!

Colts made it deep in the playoffs and now he will attempt to coach at St. Michael Catholic High School as he is retiring from the game to become a head coach.

Last week, Colts GM Chris Ballard said he would meet with Rivers to see the quarterback’s plans, but that meeting is not needed.

According to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune Rivers stated he is retiring from the NFL after 17 seasons.

Rivers said that he’d considered retirement in recent years, but that “this is the first year I felt like the ending was real.”

“It’s just time,” Rivers said. “It’s just right. . . . I can sit here and say, ‘I can still throw it. I love to play.’ But that’s always going to be there. I’m excited to go coach high school football.”

Rivers is now going to follow in his father’s footsteps and coach high school football.

“My dad was my high school football coach,” Phil said. “So I want to coach my boys and I want to coach young boys down the road.”
